Sitting Duck

14 Jan

Awhile back, I started another watercolor painting that I was laying out and referring to as Ducks in a Row, working from various source photos.  As I laid out the painting one duck at a time, I began to realize that some of my favorite photos of specific ducks would not fit well into the group composition.  Such was the case of my Sitting Duck.  If I layered her in,  you would miss her backside and the neat perspective.  So I decided she would have to be a stand, er sit alone painting.

Sitting DuckThis particular painting took forever and was pure joy to work on and see it develop.  Ducks make me happy.  Their round cheeks and happy, almost smiling bill make me smile.  To draw and paint them is absolute fun!       On to the next one Dapper Dabbler and back to Ducks in a Row (which may be renamed soon)!

This photo shows the painting darker than she really is.
